KCP is a really great program and I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking about studying Japanese in Tokyo. Although intense the sense of achievement by the end of just two and a half months is huge.

Pair work was definitely helpful, all the textbooks we used were really helpful as well. The way that Minna no Nihongo is formatted really helps students grasp how to use new grammar and how to correctly use it.

And the class time itself was surprisingly fun, with a fast-paced and energetic atmosphere. It felt like pretty much all of the students really wanted to be there and were invested in their own improvement.
